Just want to give my heartfelt thanks to the Newgrounds community for this huge milestone. I remember starting a newgrounds account back in 2018 during the whole tumblr purge. I never really knew what to do on this site nor really used it a lot at all. I mostly used this as an archive account for my finished works. Ever since a certain web game based rhythm game, it really has inspired me to look further into NG's and see what im missing out on. So shout out to ninjamuffin99 and the rest of the funkin crew for their inspirations. I was still new to the Newgrounds scene. I was and still learning a lot about different stuff that goes on in this community, and learning about all these NG's characters. I remember still going into the Newgrounds Podcast discord server for the first time and met so many awesome peeps over there, and learning even more Newgrounds culture. Listening to the podcast and hearing about all these creator's ambitions, and dreams on what they loved doing. What really got hooked to this site more than any other social media site was the sheer positive, and energetic attitude everyone on this community had. Everyone is always ready to work together and collab to create what they envision. The fact I gotten so many oppurtunities to participate in these collabs is huge. I created a piece for the NG's Summer Festival, I got my artwork featured on the wall art for the site, and now i've helped out with other people to help out and participate in animation collabs for the Summer Animation Jam. It's been awesome!
I really do thank God for leading me throughout this journey. I've been very blessed to have improved and expanded on how I used my gift of creativity go further with my skills. If it wasnt for Him, I wouldnt gotten so far in the first place. His guidance has always helped me. I pray everyday for any direction on what the next step through my journey. Little by little. Inch by inch. Even if I days where I go through trial after trial, I will always thank God for what He has given me. And one day, God willing, I want go further on this site create my own Newgrounds series with my characters with the envision I have. Maybe it was His intention for me to join this community. Who knows. But what ever happens. He will lead me.
I really do thank you guys in this community for inspiring as a creator to go further on. This will always be the best community of creators I've ever joined. Everything by everyone.
“Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay." -Habakkuk 2: 2-3
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11
